Nigerian-born stars Michael Olise and Eberechi Eze were on song as they thrashed Brentford City 3-1 in the Premier League contest on Saturday.

The visitors took the early lead to make it 0-1 just 92 seconds into the game courtesy of a goal from Keane Lewis-Potter. He was assisted by Mads Roerslev.

However, the Eagles equalized thanks to an inviting ball into the ball to Michael Olise which the playmaker poked home with style from close range.

Olise's goal came in the 14th minute courtesy of an assist from Ghana forward Jordan Ayew. Crystal Palace would take the lead to make it 2-1 thanks to the contribution of their Nigerian import.

This time it's Eberechi Eze who scored in the 39th minute thus finishing brilliantly following an assist from Tyrick Mitchell. It finished 2-1 in favour of Crystal Palace at the break.

Olise would positively get his brace as he beat his marker and slotted home in the bottom left corner of the net just outside the area to make it 3-1.

Defender Marc Guehi made the assist for Crystal Palace's third goal of the match. It finished 3-1 in favour of Crystal Palace over Brentford City.
